Hey, meine Lieblingstrickfilmserie bekommt nicht nur eine neue Staffel spendiert, sondern sogar einen Kinofilm! Futurama: Bender’s Big Score soll er heißen! Aber wie ich das bei IMDb so lese, kommt der wohl direkt auf DVD raus. Aber immerhin, ich freu mich trotzdem.
Das schreibt IMDb dazu:
Is Futurama coming back?
The show has 4 direct-to-video movies in production, the first of which is set to be released around Christmas 2007. Countless articles have stated that the show has 16 or 13 new episodes in production to air on Comedy Central in 2008 when the network obtains the rights to air the old episodes. However this isn’t the case. The new episodes will merely be the 4 straight-to-DVD movies split into 4 episodes each (16 in total) and aired on TV with new material added to make them work as episodes. This has recently been confirmed by Matt Groening in an interview in which he said “I was frustrated when it got cancelled, but Fox, 20th Television is the one who came back and said, ‘Would you like to do a DVD movie?’” Groening recalled. We said, ‘Let’s do two’ and they said, ‘Well, why not three?’ and we said, ‘Well, why not four?’ and they said, ‘Okay, four’ and then that’s it.”
After this, Comedy Central won a bid to air the films as new “Futurama” episodes. “We’re writing them as movies and then we’re going to chop them up, reconfigure them, write new material and try to make them work as separate episodes. Chopped up is an indelicate way of putting it but we are doing them as movies and then we are reconfiguring them and writing new material and narration and this that and the other so that they’ll stand on their own as episodes.”
Also wird es wohl sogar 4 Futurama-Filme geben.
Warten wir’s ab.
